NO WAY

At the end of the day, I've always got dark circles around my eyes from this mascara. I definitely don't recommend. I've never had a mascara smear this bad!

Smears

No matter what kind of primer I use, this mascara smears and gives me raccoon eyes after about an hour. It is the worst mascara I have ever used.

hated this mascara
Purchased

I am not picky with my mascara so when reading the reviews on this one i thought i couldnt go wrong. I am familiar with the brand and have used their products before. I used this mascara once and will never use it again. I had black under my eyes all day. It didnt go on nice and isnt easy to get off.

I used to LOVE this mascara...has something changed?
Purchased

Have they changed the formula of this mascara? I used to be absolutely obsessed with it, but I ordered it recently and when it came it made my lashes look sparse and it melted under my eyes after just a few hours leaving me with ugly, sparse-looking lashes and raccoon eyes. What happened to this product???

Gloopy

I've loved my Benefit mascaras in the past, but this one is a disappointment. Doesn't go on smooth, and the style of the brush is nothing fancy. Skip this one and stick to the Falsies.

Worse than drug store brands
Purchased

I was really disappointed with this mascara. The look was subtle, as advertised, but it smeared and bled under my eyes after a couple of hours. I've had better luck with drug store brands.

Results in Raccoon Eyes

Though many many other people seem to have high reviews for BADgal lash, this product resulted in raccoon eyes for me. Perhaps this is because I have high cheeks? But I applied this to my top lashes only and still had black circles under my eyes within 8hrs. I prefer Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara, which does not leave black marks below my eyes, is easy to apply, and creates thick, long lashes.

SO Surprised by the High Ratings
Purchased

I read LOTS of reviews before purchasing this mascara and have to admit I somewhat discounted the lower ratings thinking...well...everything is not for everybody. Boy do I wish I would have paid more attention to those low ratings! I love how my lashes look when I first put on this mascara, but I HATE...HATE...HATE how I have dark smudges under my eyes within 3 hrs. It looks terrible!

Worst Mascara- will flake & cause raccoon eyes
Purchased

I can't believe this has gotten so many positive reviews. I can only think that people do not expect much from their mascara. It should not smudge, flake, or otherwise fail to work as it is meant to after only a few hours. A good mascara should last an entire work day without needing reapplication or a clean up job. I normally purchase a different brand that is a tad more expensive and I've never had the problems I had with BADgal Lash. Expect more from your mascara; do not buy!

All dried out
Purchased

This mascara was all dried out which made it difficult to apply to my lashes. I would definitely not purchase again. I don't know if it's just the mascaras that BB mails out because the same thing happened with the sample of a different brand I received. Needless to say, I won't be purchasing any mascara from BB again.
